if you are in the san francisco area, do yourself a favor and find COFFEESHOP for the best iced coffee of your life. (i also had a dirty chai here, and it was lovely)
i found this tiny gem of a coffee shop because it was super easy to walk to from my airbnb while staying in the city for a yoga training. as one does, i was searching yelp for highly rated caffeine nearby. if you go to coffeeshop's yelp page you'll see tons of photos of their iced coffee, and for good reason.
i had the chance to chat up the owner, wilson (pictured below), one of the times i stopped in. he is so so knowledgeable about the coffee he serves, and as an added bonus we got on the subject of the gunas, energy and the universe. you know, casual coffee chatter. between the conversation and the coffee itself, i was feeling pretty buzzy when i left.
can i just say the coffeeshop is maybe the only coffee spot i've ever been to that does coffee ice cubes. like, what? why aren't more people doing this? i took the photo above of my own coffee. melting does not have to equal watered down! praise!
also, so instagrammable.
if you're in the area, stop in and say hi!
